Five seminarians at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, Pa., took steps toward the transitional diaconate this month. 

Daniel Rice and Daniel Reuwer were installed as acolytes in a Mass celebrated by Bishop Michael F. Burbidge in the seminary’s St. Martin’s Chapel Sept. 12. As acolytes, they can assist the priest and deacon during Mass, serve as extraordinary ministers of holy Communion and expose the Blessed Sacrament for adoration. 

One week later, seminarians Zinjin Iglesia, Andrew Clark and Luke Poczatek were installed as lectors by Bishop Burbidge at the chapel Sept. 19. The three new lectors can proclaim the first and second readings from Scripture and recite the responsorial psalm. If there is no deacon, they can announce the intentions in the prayers of the faithful.
